The glossary activity allows you to create and maintain a list of definitions, like a dictionary. The entries can be searched or browsed in different ways. Entries can include rich media such as images and links.

You can export entries from one glossary to another within the same unit and automatic linking will enable the glossary to automatically link to any occurrence of an entry within the unit.

A glossary can also be used for student collaboration purposes. If you would like students to participate by editing the terms and the definitions, use the 'Locally assigned roles' under the 'Administration' block, to assign permissions to students.
